We believe everyone should have access to clear, contemporary, accurate Bibles in their own language and in formats best-suited to their needs.
Millions of people still lack God's Word in their primary language. Millions more lack an accurate Bible translation in modern language and in a format that matches their learning preferences and needs.
Meeting the Need
Since 1809, Biblica has proclaimed the gospel by providing God's Word to more than 650 million people in their heart languages. We currently have 44 Bible translation and revision projects in 30 languages spoken by over 3 billion people.
Biblica translates the full Bible for major languages with 1 million-plus speakers. We translate from the original Greek and Hebrew texts to convey Scripture's original meaning accurately in contemporary language.
We begin with the New Testament, followed by the Old Testament and then study notes. Once a translation is completed, we conduct a first printing of the new Bibles for pastors and ministry leaders.
Royalties received from the New International Version® Bible cover our fundraising, general and administrative costs. That means 100% of your gift goes to ministry.
